Special from Toledo Speedway: The Outlaw-bodied Super Late Models 100 lap main event started the night, with an invert of the top 10 qualifiers. Hometown favorite Nick Bailey blasted into the lead from the number 1 spot, holding the point for the first 25 laps as the field settled in. Conner Zbozien snuck under Nick on lap 26 to grab the lead, and the door opened as the next 5 cars followed Conner past Bailey. For the first half of the race, the top 6 cars ran in formation, with Zbozien, Scott Hantz, Berry, Steve Needles, Cayden Lapcevich and JR Roahrig in that order.
Berry slid under Zboziten on lap 54 on a re-start and set sail in front as the field tried to chase down the leader. Zbozien ended his night with brake issues on lap 80, going down pit road to end his run. Berry had a 5-car length lead as Roahrig, now in second spot, tried to reel in Berry but to no avail. Trevor grabbed the checkered flag in Bob Blount’s #16 machine to score the big win and somewhat of an upset victory. Roahrig was second at the stripe, Needles third, 2-time Glass City and defending race winner Lapcevich was fourth and Mike Mazzagatti was fifth, with the top 5 on the lead lap. Bailey was 6th, 1 lap down, Hantz was seventh, 2 laps off the pace. Joe Hawes, Zbozien, Dennis Strickland, Chris Benson, Emerson Huffman, Harold Fair Jr. and Steve Hawes completed the finishing order.
Strickland announced his retirement during the on-track autograph session prior to the start of theevent and received a loud ovation from the crowd. Bonus awards went to Needles, the LV Alliance Fast Qualifier Award (15:029), ($300) from LV boss Larry Varney. Roahrig pocketed the $200 Fastime Racing Engines and Parts Hard Charger Award, Bailey takes the $200-6th place finishing bonus from race fan Dennis Figley, while winner Berry and 5th place finisher Mazzagatti will get the Penske Shocks $200 product certificate and $100 product certificate, respectively.
